I'm a poor graduate student looking for a good deal on a new car. I'm considering the Focus, but I have some questions for any owners out there. How's the transmission? Most Ford cars from the 90s on have been notorious for bad trannies and I was hoping they corrected this problem on the Focus. I also can't decide if the SE model with the 130 hp engine is worth the extra cash. I will probably get the manual trans which usually helps performance somewhat and I don't really need the power package (door locks, windows, etc.) And if anyone knows how it handles in the snow, that would be great. Any other infor or warnings would be appreciated.
